Behind the wish to build the world's largest BioEnergy plant stand two different purposes.
The one purpose is to reduce the amount of nutrients, that the farmers discharge. By treating the manure in the bioenergy plant it will be possible to reduce the discharge of manure.
The second purpose is to produce biogas as a substitute for the traditional fuel used in energy supply.
Besides from this they work on being able to use dead animals and recycle organic waste from the households and sludge in the process.
On account of the economy the plant must be big. It is expected, that the plant on a yearly basis will handle 485.000 tonnes of biomass. Of this amount the 360.000 tonnes of manure will come from the agriculture.
The total yearly production of biogas thereby will be 14,5 million m3 biogas. This means that this plant will be the world's largest bioenergy plant.
The reason for Måbjerg BioEnergy operating with these large amounts must be found in the partners, who stand behind this project. Over 200 farmers have joined up behind the projcet and has not only invested in the project but will also act as suppliers of manure to the plant.
The above mentioned amount of manure corresponds to manure from more than 26.000 household animals. On top of this amount of manure to feed the BioEnergy plant comes different kinds of waste from the Food Science Industry and the possibility to add sludge and waste water to the plant.
